Stange problem on Pocket PC using VB.NET 2005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm new to VB.NET 2005 and have stumbled across a very strange problem for which I cannot find a solution for. I am literally pulling my hair out!

    I'm developing an application for the Pocket PC 2003. I have a form which uses a Port to read incoming data. The data is read at 1 second intervals using a Timer control. The data that is read is then updated in to fields and labels on the form.

    It all works great until I display a message box or display another form. The form (the that needs to be updated) simply stops updating. I have put a debug into the Timer's "Timer_Tick" event and nothing happens. So either the Timer is stopping or the port stops receiving data....or both. I am forced to restart the port and the timer from a button I put on the form for the updating to begin again! But ofcourse this is not what I want. I need the form to update at all times.

    Can anyone please help?

    Thank you,
